Article Preview

According to the periodic structure of the plate-fin heat exchanger, 3D model of the heat exchanger is established which simplifies the computation amount of the numerical simulation on flow field and temperature field. The relationship of fluid velocity, temperature, pressure drop and heat transfer coefficient is analyzed. The flow and heat transfer characteristics can be well predicted. Based on the simulation results, the conclusion makes reference to the design of plate-fin heat exchanger.
